Blackwell by Alexandrea Weis 4/5

This is the first book in a new paranormal series, based on jealousy, revenge, betrayal and dark voodoo magic.

The two main characters are Magnus Blackwell a rich spoiled son of a powerful man. Money means nothing to Magnus. And Jacob O’Connor an orphan who was accepted into Harvard on a full scholarship organised by his mentor Mr Fogle who has taken care of him since he was a child.
Both these men become the best of friends at Harvard together until Jacob falls in love with a woman that Magnus has cast aside in his usual manner with women.
Through the years that follow Magnus holds a grudge and feels betrayed by Jacob and tries to avenge the loss of the only woman he had ever loved in his own particular way.
He exacts his revenge and retribution by destroying his former best friend Jacob and his happiness by using unusual methods.
Though at his lowest, full of pain and grief and with nothing left to lose Jacob too exacts revenge on Magnus for his actions.

This was a very dark supernatural thriller which shows just how far men will go to act out their revenge.
Blackwell is a book full of passion, betrayal, love and of course voodoo magic.

I did enjoy this book and will continue to read the other books in the series as they are released.
The start was a little slow but it soon picks up speed so stick with it and enjoy the ride.

Overall a really good read which I would recommend.

Format: Hardcover
This is an extremely atmospheric tale with love, vengeance, a bit of history and ghosts - what more could you ask for?
The story starts in 1886 and a young Jacob O’Connor starting his architectural course at Harvard. Born an orphan (his description) he only got to Harvard thanks to a generous benefactor. It’s here he meets Magnus Blackwell, his opposite in every way but they become firm friends.
As they enjoy uni life their differences become apparent. Jacob is studious and polite whilst Magnus gets others to do his studying whilst he spends his time with many women. This all changes when Frances comes along. Magnus can't stay faithful and when she ends things he goes to new Orleans. Here he meets a young Irish writer named Oscar Wilde and they are soon enjoying the darker side of the city and discovering voodoo.
Magnus eventually reunites with Jacob but not under the best of circumstances. He hates that Jacob got the girl and plots his revenge.
I found this to be an intriguing tale and the relationship between Magnus and Jacob was extremely well written. Frances is a strong female character which I really appreciated as I really hate reading about simpering women!
The spooky atmosphere of New Orleans really comes through and you definitely get the odd chill. An excellent tale really well told.

Format: Hardcover
Blackwell by Alexandrea Weis and Lucan Astor is a brooding story of lust, love and bitter revenge. It is a four star read. It is set in America in the 1800s and follows the lives of Magnus Blackwell, an aristocrat and his impoverished friend O’Connor. They meet at Harvard and form an unlikely friendship which falters over the love of a woman, Frances. Magnus leaves and visits New Orleans and becomes fascinated with Voodoo and he is convinced it will give him all he wants in life. He learns what he can from a high priestess and tried to harness the dark powers for himself.
Magnus is almost a stereotypical aristocrat, arrogant, self serving and selfish, he is dark and malevolent. O’Connor is naive and at first is grateful for his friendship with Magnus and what he can help him achieve. This turns to distrust and hatred as the story progresses to its climactic end.
This is the first novel I have read from this author and it won't be the last, I am really interested to see how the next Magnus Blackwell novel unravels.
